Temporary Financial Hardship subsidy amount

You’ll be able to access 100 hours of subsidised care each fortnight for your child.

We’ll pay the lower of either:

  • 100% of the fee charged where it’s equal to or below the hourly rate cap
  • up to 120% of the hourly rate cap, where the fee charged is above the hourly rate cap.

We’ll only pay this additional subsidy for a maximum of 13 weeks per event.

You can apply for a higher percentage in exceptional circumstances.
